Sasquatch is in Five Days, Are You Ready?

This week’s paper has the Official Sasquatch Guide with blurbs on every single artist performing (including the comedy acts), a map of the grounds, and a schedule of who’s playing where and when.

I’m looking at it right now, planning my weekend, and I’m already exhausted. Grand Hallway, the Breeders, Beirut, MIA, Modest Mouse, and (yeah) REM on Saturday. The Cure, Death Cab, Cancer Rising, Truckasauras, Blue Scholars, and maybe the Presidents and 65Daysofstatic (who are supposedly fantastic live) on Sunday. Dyme Def, Battles, Jamie Lidell, Built to Spill, Flaming Lips, Kay Kay, Siberian, Say Hi, and the Choir Practice on Monday… and that’s just the list of stuff that’s on my “Do Not Miss” list due to my own adoration or friend’s recommendations.

Festivals make my head spin.

The comedy tent, I think, will be the savior this year—I plan on spending a lot of time in there sitting and laughing and avoiding the sun. I’m Swedish-Norwegian, I burn.

Click here to put together your own perfect Sasquatch. You don’t want to show up unprepared.

And now for the weather:

65 are fantastic live though. They are playing a headline show the night before in Boise, then they're on at 1pm Sunday. They tend to be best in the face of adversity. They also tend to accidentally blow up their equipment quite a lot. Either way it'll be good.

for a person with questionable tastes (hockey jerseys?), robert smith definitely picked winners with 65dos. it's a shame they aren't playing a seattle proper show, but a lot of people will see them at sasquatch... i'll relent that this is more important than what i alone want.

LEARN TO KEEP COOLING COSTS DOWN lol

I wonder if Monday is going to reenact the evil spiked-hail thunderblast over Neko and the Lips like two years ago.
